PERSON #1 is in the middle of taking a selfie. S/he looks at his/her MIRROR IMAGE on the phone. Then the PHONE rings. S/he answers the call, and begrudgingly begins speaking to PERSON #2.
1: Hey, did you get my text?
1: ...Okay, so--
2: I thought we should talk anyway.
1: Really, why?
2: Because I wanted to talk to you.
1: Well, that's not exactly a reason.

2: Fine because I wanted to speak out loud and know that you're hearing my voice when I say that you are a terrible person.

1: What, I'm sorry, you cut out, what do--

2: I said you're a terrible fucking person!
1: (SIGHS) Okay. I'm sorry. Anything else?
2: You're not sorry.
1: Yes I am, I'm sorry that you feel the way you do. That is sorrowful to me.
2: That's not being sorry.
1: Let me ask you something. Why did you really call? What do you want from me?
The HOBO has wandered back into frame, UNNOTICED by Person #1, but getting closer throughout the following lines.
2: I want you to say you're sorry.
1: Right, and I already did that.
2: No, I want you to mean it.
1: No, what you want is...
